The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain address has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
